What first drew you into music?
I had a music teacher in 2nd Grade, her name was Mrs. Powers, and she always showed us how to have fun with music. Every time I would ask a question or get called on to give an answer she would always sing, “Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho”. Now that I think about it I suppose God was speaking to me through her.
Your track “Geronimo” is absolutely amazing! How did you achieve such a great signature sound in such a short time? Also, what is your creative process like?
Much love and thank you! Finding “my sound” was more so about channeling the energy and message God wants me to spread. Most of the time I go into the writing process with a blank slate and let the song manifest other times I write the vocals or guitar melody and build around that. Maybe it’ll take 5 minutes to create maybe a couple days. To me it’s less about the fire and more so about the fire starter.
Going over your Soundcloud we can tell you love experimenting with new sounds. Can you tell us more about your studio setup and some of your favorite plugins/instruments?
Yes, the sonics are vital to add diversity and character to the overall plot so I try to stay inspired with as many instruments and plug-ins possible haha. I have a multitude of instruments, midi keyboards, portable interface for on the go recording, etc. But I would say out of all the gear my favorite is my Multiac Nylon Duet Ambiance Natural HG. My favorite plug-in is either Fab Filter Eq or Valhalla Room.
Your music sounds very organic and authentic. Do you play any real-life instruments?
Yes, I play mainly classical guitar but can create on pretty much all instruments by ear. Except saxophone. Got me sounding like Squidward on the clarinet lol.
What are your musical goals for the future?
More placements and GRAMMY’S! But awards aside I aim to and will spread the message of God past, present, and future. All goals and aspirations arise from that single thought and will be achieved as such.
What are your goals for the coming months? Any upcoming projects we can get excited about?
In the next coming months my goals are to spread love and the glory of God. How ever he/she sees fit. I do have a project in the works titled, “Billboard Evangelist” that is going to be monumental for any and all who listen. All I can say is stay tuned.
